Boy laid to rest in Sonic the Hedgehog Coffin was a September 2012 thread in Sensationalist Headlines,[1] notable for featuring a post by Mein Bratwurst which is one of the most Funny-rated posts of all time.

Content

As its title suggests, the thread was a story about a 4-year-old boy who had drowned after falling into the sea in Somerset, UK. The boy had been a fan of Sonic the Hedgehog, and was buried in a blue coffin adorned with a picture of the character.

After just 3 posts, Mein Bratwurst entered the thread and posted the Drowning music from the original Sonic the Hedgehog game.[2] Immediately people started to declare that they were "going to hell for laughing," and Sobotnik branded it "the single most divisive post in SH for September." MILKE subsequently bought Mein Bratwurst a title declaring that he's "going to hell."
